I am new to this forum. I came across it searching for information regarding cable set top boxes. In my HT system I have basic cable service and my TV has QAM so that I get any unencrypted digital and HD channels. I also have a separate tuner with QAM so that I can send these same channels to my projector. I am looking for a way to record the free HD channels for later play back. I was hoping that I could buy a Motorola DVR (local cable company uses Motorola) and use it with my basic cable service to record the SD and HD channels that I get with my basic cable service. I am not trying to get anything that I am not paying for. I just want to be able to locate by use of a guide and record for later play back. Has anybody come up with any solutions to this problem?
Are you wanting to build an HD DVR that you can use to play back to the TV or the Projector?
I'm not sure if it can do it, but I think it'll be worth your time to read up on.. http://www.mythtv.org/
